The NobraBka RhodOB scholarship
examinations will bo hold October
19th and 20th. It is probable that
comparatively few students will take
tho tests which aro nocessary before
ono can qualify for tho English schol
arshlp. Why this is so it is hard to
understand. Tho Rhodes honor should
bo ono much sought after by men de
siring tho benefits of all-round culture.
In tho oast the examinations result in
much more competition than here in
tho wost. This is probably duo to the
fact that eastern men appreciate more
tho advantages of foreign training
than do their western contemporaries.
Thoro may bo more men In tho east
interested In the academic work,
whereas in tho woBt tho universities
have a larger percentage of technical
students. But the fact remains that
thoro are many academic Btudents at
Nebraska who could well afford the
henoflts of tho English tarinlng. A
fifteen hundred dollar scholarship al

Tho action of the committee on stu
dent organizations In requesting that
all cases of Illness among students be
reported at once to tho registrar's of
fice is a move in tho right direction.
There has boon no such regulation bf
student sickness in the pust, and In
a university as largo as this such a
condition is not to bo condoned. Room
ing houses should aid tho university
in keeping in touch with all cases of
illness by promptly reporting to tho
registrar. Students themselves can
help by insisting that such reportB bo

Tho summer vacation was not an
idle one for Chancellor Samuel Avery.
. Ho utilized his time to tho advantage
of the university and no part of It was
bettor- spent than that in which ho
sought to get Into a closer touch with
the- patrons of tho Btato school. That
he' was rewarded In this" effort is
Uni String Quartet
shown by tho testimony of the Omaha
Bee: "From all over tho state comes
tho word that the oloctlon of. Chan
cellor Avery as head of the state's
groatest educational Institution Is
meeting with hearty approval by edu
cators, business men, and the people
gonorally. Chancellory Avery Is In
groat domand aB a lecturer. In the
early spring ho dollvorod several com
mencement addresses. On July 15 ho
gave tho commencement addross for
tho St. Paul Normal and Business Col
logo. On July 25 ho delivered a lay
sermon at Ansloy. July 27 and 28 he
lectured at Scotts Bluff chautauqua.
July 29 and 30 he addressed the stu
dontB of tho Alliance Junior Normal
Sohool." Dr. Avory also represented
tho university at a mooting of the
associated agricultural colleges, and
ho visited tho universities of Idaho,
Washington, Oregon, and MlnnesoTa.
and tho agricultural college of Oregon.
PAYING THE PENALTY.
The sentence Imposed upon two Ne
braska fraternities for violation of" thb
rushing rules will probably meet with
tho approval of most of the Greeks.
9y tho ruling of the lnterfraternlty
council, the organizations convicted of
failuro to observe tho ruleB which they
Popular Priced Furnishings 1415 O S T.
themselves had helped to frame aro
prohibited from pledging the men con
cornod until tho beginning of the sec
ond semester. In addition, they can
not initiate tho men, If pledged, until
after they have completed twelve
hours' work in the second-semester.
It would seem that thiB were em
inently fair. Members of tho fraternl
ties have themselves admitted that tho
rules were violated. Men were enter
tained at times and In manners not
allowed under the regulations of the
council. That being so, tho fraterni
ties, onco convicted, should pay the
penalty. They Bhould be made to feel
that Infractions of the rules are not
to go unnoticed by tho council. Only
by Imposing a penalty can further vio
lations be checked.
On the other hand, It Is generally
admitted that there are good reasons
for not imposing a heavy penalty.
Thoro Is no question but that the
rushing rules have been repeatedly
violated during the past two years,
and that with comparative Impunity.
Men have been rushed at times and
in ways not permitted under tho reg
ulations fixed by the fraternities
themselves. They have been 'spiked"
in numerous cases in direct violation
of the rules. And yet the penalties
have not been inflicted and, so far as
is known outside the secret discus
sions of tho council, almost no com
plaints have been made. It Is little
wonder that tho fraternities have
como to think that the rules are lack
ing in force and that, if the letter is
obeyed, their spirit can be violated
This year a complaint was made
and, somewhat to tho surprise of most
students, the offending fraternity was
found guilty. Being guilty. It was sen
tenced; and yet that sentence is not
Bovere. Tho men concerned, if they
expected to join either of tho fraterni
ties, wllMn all probability stand by
their original intentions. Temporarily
the organizations will not bo benefited
by their membership, but it is likely
that this difficulty will be a dlsadvon-

Tho action of the council 1b, how
ever, a warning to the Greeks that the
council intends to take cognizance in
tho future of such infractions. Un

inflicted for failure to obey the regula

maximum penalty. Tho rules aro made
